Get rid of toast notifications?

is there *ANY* way to stop the annoying marketing toast pop-up notifications from the tray? I turned off all notifications in the settings because i don't want ANY notifications, including annoying little marketing nonsense.


if i can't get rid of these, i'm off to a new product....

Hi @wms,

We regret for the inconvenience caused!
These pop ups are information alerts we have a option to disable these alerts open McAfee UI click on settings>> General Settings and information alerts>> Information Alerts>> make sure the check box is unchecked and click on apply. This should disable the alerts.

Re: Get rid of toast notifications?

Hi McAfee,

Either this suggested action only takes effect after a reboot/restart or it is wholly an ineffective method.  I have performed this change and still receive toaster pops for adding additional computers for protection. 

I understand and appreciate this valuable feature of the McAfee product, however, I respectfully also would like to reserve my screen real estate for messages relevant to my work and that is not one of them. 

Is there a more effective method or detail regarding disabling the toaster pop-ups?
